PyMOL is a molecular viewing software used to make stunning pictures and movies for presentations and manuscripts. It is easy to pick up, because of its GUI interface, but has a lot of flexibility because of its myriad scripting options. PyMOL has the ability to export MPEG movies. A timeline feature makes the storyboarding of complex movies a snap. There is a small molecule builder and there are advanced electrostatic calculation options.
This tutorial will take beginning users unfamiliar with molecular modeling and/or PyMOL through the basics, including how to load, draw, and manipulate molecular models; make simple scripts; and create simple pictures and movies.
